The beauty contest; it’s a Corvettes at Carlisle annual tradition that doesn’t demand what contestants should wear in order to compete. Only one out of seven girls in the competition for 2016 chose not to stuff a wild bikini. The long cool woman in the white dress mentioned she wanted to become an international spy one day and smoked a skinny cigarette while sporting snazzy sunglasses to complete her mysterious look.
The Corvette folks were welcoming, and applauded the lady in the long white dress as enthusiastically as Aubrey the girl that ultimately won the crown for 2016. And these weren’t just a bunch of beautiful girls that couldn’t tell you the difference between a Corvette, and a Corvair take contestant number 4 for example her first car was a 1991 Corvette. It’s hard to hear the announcer over the cheering crowd and loud music, but listen close and you’ll discover the contestants hailed from nearby Hershey, Elizabethtown, Harrisburg, Lancaster, Highgrove, York, and sadly the last location is inaudible to us. If you can make it out please send a self-stamped envelope with the answer to Vette magazine in Santa Ana, California. Don’t worry the mailman knows how to find us there’s long deep patches of burned rubber leading to our office door.
Additional information garnered was the girl’s favorite colors, the food they like to eat best, and what they like about a Corvette. For instance contestant number one’s favorite color is green, and entrant number two’s favorite color is blue. Did it sound like Aubrey’s favorite color is purple? The winners were 3rd place to Karista, 2nd place to Amanda, and 1st place to Aubrey. Plugs, and points; please stay tuned this is just the first segment in our coverage from Corvettes at Carlisle 2016.
The hills were alive with the sound of Corvette music played eight cylinders at a time to 4/4 beat. And if that’s not a hokey lead in I’ll trade my 1990 Z51 in for a K-Mart bicycle with a big pink basket, and sparkling streamers hanging from the handlebars.
